I was pleased to see, in an article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, that the Flower Show has embraced a realistic approach to Hawaiian culture. I have been doing this from the start in my design of a miniature Hawaiian museum whose information on plant lore and usage I have been researching for months.

In the Museum of Hawaiian Plant Lore, I have created large panels to explain the displays. I actually made them quite large, the way I wish they were in most museums, so you can see them easily. Here are the panels in case you want to learn a bit about Hawaiian plants and plant lore or would like to see the panels more easily. You can click on any image to get a larger view and a slide show.
